Encountering a bully is one of the toughest situations children can face. As parents, caregivers, and teachers, we owe it to our children to make sure they know what to do if they are bullied. Rita Y. Toews' book The Bully, for elementary school students, fits that need perfectly.
In The Bully, a short story sets a scene children encounter all too frequently--a school bully. The story is followed by a question and answer section that gives children insight intohow a bully operates, helps children verbalize how they feel when they are bullied, and gives suggestionson what action children can take when a school bully strikes.
The question and answer section for caregivers provides information on how to identify a bully problem, and gives helpful suggestions on how to deal with the bullying situation.
Perfect for use in the classroom. THE BULLY book needs no lesson plan since the questionsand answers are already contained within the story. The ideal situation would be for each child to have his orher own copy of the book which they could take home for follow-up work. The messageof positive role-modelling and working through the bully incident with the school is then carried into the home.
The Bully has received reviews and/or testimonies from numerous professionals, including behaviour therapists. Please visit the reviews page to see what is being said about this excellent bully resource.
